from what I see from your config file, you have enabled a lot of stuff,
I'm pretty sure which won't build correctly for the walnut.
I.e. the whole framebuffer stuff is not needed - switch it off.
(This is also your problem here!)
I suggest to go through all of your configuration and disable all of
the stuff, which you do not really need:
- frame-buffer
- usb
- all of the crypto stuff
- IPv6

Set at least only processor, platform and serial console support on
(and of course correctly) then try again. Never start with a full 
or overloaded config set ;)
